A new bill in New Mexico aims to lower the voting age to 16.
House Democrats in the state of New Mexico have introduced a new bill that would allow 16 and 17-year-olds to vote in city, county, and state-wide elections.
The new bill would amend Mexico’s previous state laws which require voters to be 18 years old to cast a ballot.
House Bill 217 will be reviewed by New Mexico’s House Government, Elections & Indian Affairs Committee on Saturday.
